Subject: See This Band
This was my first UM show. I have listened to a number of downloads prior but that did not prepare me for the live experience.
The light show was outstanding.
But the fullness of the sound was almost overwhelming. That richness & sonic complexity is lacking on these recordings. That’s not a knock to the recording and many sincere thanks to those that post but nothing captures the presence of the live show. Probably sounds obvious but this band live has to be experienced.

One more note on this show – the second set starts with the band off-stage but the music is playing full on. Band members enter and pick-up with the recording seamlessly. A neat touch. And another nod to the quality of their sound system & staff.

Mantis front to back was amazing, that more then satisfied the need for new stuff...1348 freakin rocks!

The 1st set seemed to go on f o r e v e r that night & listening to it again, it's really sick!

Capped off by a (decent) Floyd cover (which should've been the encore Sat. night), what more could one ask for?

Kick Ass Recording, especially considering how loud it was in there. Great Venue, great setlist, they were killing it. Wife Soup and Tinkle's in the first set were great. As was the entire Mantis rendition, espcially Mantis and Spires. It's a good sign their newest shit is some of their best. Perhaps, if this is possible, the best is yet to come?

Hi Scott,

This recording sounds great!! Thanks for taping and getting it up'd so quickly!! It was good meeting you and hanging out (it's Jason from the U-Melt/Indiana Allstars after-show). I'm looking forward to grabing more of your tapes!!

Subject: Full Album
full album: that's really cool. Thanks for sharing a fine quality recording so quickly, Scott.

Only 4 stars here though the playing and sound was great; I reserve 5 stars for the over the top performances.
ok, maybe 4 and a half stars

Subject: Fixed tracking....
Song order was messed up in the streaming player. Everything should be OK now.
Reviewer: phan4liphe - - April 13, 2009
Subject: Best umph set I've seen
I've been seeing these guys for 3+ years.. and probably about 20 shows... this is by far the best I've seen of them. The first set didn't have a second of down time, and paired with the "mantis" second set, truly shows how diverse the band can be.

If you're a fan.. or even if you aren't.. this is a must have.

Thanks for putting it up, and fixing the tracks.
